It has been more than a month since Manny Pacquiao underwent surgery for the torn rotator cuff on his right shoulder.
It was an injury he purportedly sustained a while back, but was said to have worsened during his fight against Floyd Mayweather on May 2nd, leaving him unable to perform at 100%.
On Thursday (Friday, PHT), Top Rank chief Bob Arum spoke to ESPN.com to give an update on Pacquiao’s condition.
"Manny says he has been doing well. He said he has been feeling better.”
The 83-year old promoter also noted that the eight-division world champion will be flying to the United States next week for a follow-up exam with Dr. Neal ElAttrache.
"Manny is coming over to see the doctor and then he will start his serious rehab. He'll stay here for probably about two weeks and then he will go back to the Philippines. One of the rehab guys will go with him to make sure he is doing his rehab program the right way."
As of this posting, no further news about Manny Pacquiao’s immediate boxing future has been made final. He is expected to be shelved for about 9-12 months before making a full recovery.
